ERA-EDTA cares
ERA-EDTA cares
The ERA-EDTA values the comments that congress delegates have submitted via the post congress feedback questionnaire. The Association is always looking for new ways to improve services, learning and networking opportunities. For this reason, in the upcoming e-newletters, we would like to address some of the issues that matter to you.

‘I would like to suggest that more travel grants are considered for developing countries’

The ERA-EDTA is committed to increasing the number of travel grants, especially for young professionals coming from developing countries. Not only is the Association offering 50,000 EUR in travel grants to the young authors submitting the best abstracts, but it has also been promoting a new initiative known as ASQ, which enables congress delegates to provide their important feedback and at the same time increase the number of grants (for every 200 completed questionnaires a travel grant shall be awarded). Moreover, the proceeds of the ERA-EDTA Shop (selling ERA-EDTA branded items) will be used for travel grants for young nephrologists.
